I don't really know, thus the waiting... :)

This is all that I know: http://www.kornshell.com/doc/faq.html

Q6.	Are any further releases of ksh planned?
A6.	Yes, we are in the process of planning for a newer version,
	ksh200X.  We are interested in suggestions for new features.
	Again, most of the focus will be on scripting and reusability.

Q7.	What new features are planned for ksh200X?
A7.	We are in the early stage of planning but the likely additions
	are namespaces, an inheritance mechanism for objects,
	and support for binary objects.  Support for multi-threading
	is also being considered.
